Abstract : The study indicates a favorable aspect toward the feasibility of incorporating an integral powder lubrication system into a gas-turbine engine. Such a system could use a mixture of 83.3 percent graphite and 16.7 percent cadmium oxide (by weight) with an air carrier in the ratio of approximately 20 parts of air to 1 part powder. Engine bleed air at a rate of 3 percent engine flow rate should be sufficient for carrier gas at all altitudes. Powder would be dispensed and metered through air educaors (venturi tubes). Reclamation of spent lubricant is not considered in this system. (Author)
